Madison River

Dam: 1,590 cfs

Kirby: 1,640 cfs (and rising)

Varney: 1,830 cfs

CFS and Clarity Update:  There’s some water in the ditch folks…flows continue to rise on the Upper Madison as PPL has been steadily pulsing the river over the last week.  We are currently holding at around 3 feet of green visibility, and while the dry fly fishing has certainly slowed down a bit we are still doing well on nymphs and streamers below the surface.  If you plan on heading up to the wade section be sure to grab a good supply of Pat’s Rubber Legs, #12-16 PTs, Caddis Larva, and prince nymphs and isolate water along the edges.  We are also having some really good mornings on streamers before the bugs start popping, and even into the afternoon when the cloud cover has held…olive and yellow dungeons, barely legals, and olive peanut envys have all been good choices over the last few days.
